Program

As always, the League’s annual Conference is a place to connect – to greet old colleagues and make new friends, to discover new and innovative ideas or to be reintroduced to tested and true techniques, and to relax, refresh and renew.

Here are just some of the outstanding events you can expect this June:

ORCHESTRA LEADERSHIP ACADEMY Seminars

Let us help you invest in the future! The League is committed to recognizing and encouraging effective and visionary leadership in the orchestra profession and for the performing arts. 

TOOLBOXES and PERSPECTIVES
Hear thoughtful presentations from experts on big issues, engage in active problem solving and exploration in small groups, and, in many cases, explore ideas that will inform your work back home.

GENERAL SESSIONS

You'll find inspiring and informative General Sessions each day. Open up your view of what is possible.  Speakers from the performing arts community and from the world beyond will share experiences, insights, and ideas.

CONSTITUENCY MEETINGS

As usual, meetings with your orchestra peers are planned throughout the week.  Details will follow as each group sets its agenda. 

TUNE UP PARTY!

The ever popular post concert League get together will take place after the concert by the Chicago Symphony.

NETWORKING
There’s something going on in Chicago’s arts community every night, some programs specially designed just for the Convention.  Take advantage of performances, late-night events, breakfasts, lunchtime meetings in the Exhibit Hall, and more to catch up with colleagues and expand your personal network.
